Guinea-Bissau

Guinea-Bissau is located on the West Coast of Africa. The country’s official language is Portuguese, and their education system is closely tied to Portugal.

The country, with a population of about 1.8 million, has a public and a private University. On top of this, there are two universities in the country operated and funded by Portuguese universities. This is due to the fact that, most people in the country, used to go abroad for their education, mostly to Portugal. Recognizing the need for more educational institutions in the country, these Portuguese satellite schools started up.
